Squirrel King

by Gamtec



Squirrel King is a platform/action video game produced, without license from Sega, by the Taiwanese developer Gamtec for the Mega Drive. Gamtec is also responsible for the development of a number of other games, including many for the Gamate handheld system.

It appears to be loosely based upon Capcom's Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, sharing its gameplay mechanics, although it is not licensed by Disney. As in the aforementioned game, the main character must throw crates at the enemies in order to defeat them. Sometimes crates have helpful things like extra fireballs, extra lives, and health boosts. Other times, they have "power-downs" that reduce the player's health. Despite some animation issues, this game is considered to be of professional quality. Players are given a limited amount of lives and continues to beat the game with; it takes half as many games to gain an extra life in two-player mode as opposed to the single-player mode. This video game is divided into seven acts; with a elephant denomined Barnett as the final boss of the game.

This game was eventually used as the basis for the unofficial Mega Drive Super Mario World game. Two of the levels in this game have their background music based on that of the Super NES video game Donkey Kong Country.
